Like the ones I have under the user name "y" and "Stresstest:)" ?

We know who you are and what you have done so far. No worries. And were just a week old, might as well do it in the beginning :)

I just got a new laptop at work, and if I dont' have to give my current one back I'll use it to add to the processing power.

Granted it's only a p3 700, but every little bit helps. :)

Wont happen. He's fallen to number 2 overall so he's currently assembling another room full of PC's in a desperate bid to reclaim the top spot.

2000 will come real quick at this rate, you're right.

Listen guys. For those of you that want a very powerful workstation at a very cheap price considering, check this out.

I just purchased a dual Xeon system and have mass parts here so all I needed was the CPUs and board.
There is this great deal on now for a matched pair of low voltage 1.6Ghz HT CPUs over here for $119 shipped in the US. The link on that page called "Crazed Overclockers" is a link to the Anandtech forums where everyone is overclocking the hell outa these things to the likes of 2.6~2.8Ghz. Add to that a Asus PC-DL mobo for 180 @ mwave.com and for under 300 you can have 5.2Ghz +.

I really don't need it, but I ordered them anyway, and figure they will churn out WU's faster then any 2 systems here can do combined :)

does that mobo have onboard video and lan? If so all I would need would be a case, some ram, hdd, and a CD drive.

Onboard LAN and Audio, not Gfx
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProductDe ... 055&depa=0

HEY STRESS >> I have a 3Ghz dual xeon here and I cannot get my two processes to take more than 25% of the cpu time (50% of total processing). Any idea what the prob is? I assume that since hyperthreading is turned on and the OS reports that I have 4 CPUs instead of 2 that F@H gets confused ...

I suppose I could just run 2 more processes on this box but I would rather keep it to 2 at 50% each.

Any help wood b appreshated ... I am wasting 3Ghz here

hm, i just looked at the asus boards on newegg. the cheap one doesnt have on board video, but considering im going to try to pick up at 6800GT, I can do the hand me down thing. Also, what kinds of ram would work in this thing? it says it needs unbuffered ECC. What exactly does that mean?

been going for over a month
but if you are going to go for it, do it very soon. At least snag the CPUs as soon as you can afford 120 bucks. The board will be around for some time, but Im not sure about the deal on the CPUs

Hmm...I wont have 120 for two weeks, I dont suppose you'd consider grabbing them for me and i could just pay you for the chips and shipping when I do get money? Dont do it right away if you do, cause I still need to think about wether I wanna assemble another system, but just think about it.

Oh, and could someone asnwer my question about the RAM?

Erm, nm....forgot that new egg lists that stuff with ram. How much ram would you reccomend for a system like that? 1G? and if im gonna be overclocking these things, what grade DDR should I pick up?

Neither NewEgg or Monarch offer Xeon processors less than 2.4Ghz any more. I suspect that once these are gone ... no more.
